Heard this years ago hanging in the neighborhood. I thought I had imagined this all but no it is the real deal.

15 Men on a Dead Man's Chest
I was at this show (second Dead show). There were 15 men on the stage, and they all leaned on Pigpen to carry the night. As usual, he prowled the stage and sang his heart out when asked. Garcia, Dwayne, and Peter Green huddled on the left side of the stage and dueled the night away. The Allman Bros. opened the show and I knew right away they were going to be headlining soon. Two of America's best bands on one unforgetable night. (And I saw Furthur last night on the 38th anniversary of Pig's death--they played six of his tunes and all I saw were smiles all around.) Long live the Grateful Dead!

the Holy Grail of Dead shows.
mere words cannot describe this show. It's the holy grail of Dead shows. It even surpasses Dick's picks 4 by far, and that was the best one of that series. Why wasn't this show ever released? Greedy record company royalty disputes? Well I'm not going to wait to my next life to listen to this archive, I've finally got it now!!!!!!!!!!!
